I’m over here speaking praises.
God has really opened my eyes to things I had struggled seeing before. I’ve come so far, but oh my, do I have so far to go. I will say it again, every day is a new day to become better than you were the day before.
I have really been working hard on putting God first. In the easy ways, of course, like praising him, loving him, reading his word, showing him daily that I love him most.
But it’s the hard stuff that I’ve been doing lately to prove my love to Him. Shutting my mouth when I don’t want to, releasing thoughts of negativity from my mind, MOST IMPORTANTLY, letting God do Him Nad keeping myself out of it.
I’m still not where I want to be. I’m not even close. But I’ve been going to Him more than ever before. It feels good. I’ve been really asking God for His will to be done in my life. Even if I don’t see his plan, I will do my best to obey.
Not everything in my life is wonderful. Actually, the opposite. There’s a lot of problems I have going on. But I will not let that deter from what God is trying to do in my life.
Romans 12:2 ESV
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
I learned the other day what NEW was in the Bible- at least one meaning. What it really meant. God says we are new in Him. But what has many years of translations and our understanding done to it? Kainos (Greek spelling, who knows, but cool if you know) is fresh. It’s untouched. It’s brand new. God gives us this gift. All we do is seek Him. Mmmm so comfy and lovely. It’s like fresh sheets out of the dryer. But better. Way better.
2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
